My morning ride was a bit chilly. The chill, along with no wind, kept me going all the way out to Armington Road. I kept my rpm at a steady pace and I just went hard the whole way. It felt really good.
After getting cleaned up, I walked down to Roots Salon and Jill, the owner, cut my hair. (I love living where I can walk to get a hair cut. I can walk to the doctors. I can walk to the grocery store and post office. I can just walk everywhere.) We talked about canning and eating right and bicycling. She asked if I miss California, to which I replied, “No way!”
The guys came today to do some insulation work on the house. I got them started and then I went off to work.
Another busy day at work, but I managed to take an hour for lunch so I could take some portraits of our missionaries.
They are a great asset to our ward and the community. Yes, we have 9 full-time young missionaries, not to mention the site missionaries and the temple missionaries. (Most of the temple missionaries are assigned to other wards, as are some of the site missionaries.)
After work, I took a short walk through the village. It was after 5pm so almost every shop had closed up. Now, I do not understand that. Given the nature of the businesses, it makes more sense for them to be open after working hours, than it does for them to keep banker’s hours. I mean, who takes time off from work to go shopping because the shops close at 5pm? I’m sure some people do, but most of us will not. We will go to places that are open after work.
It was a busy day.
